So I haven't been on this forum in more than a few years. I stopped collecting. I've decided to get back into collecting and I'm really excited! No more price gouging NCLTs.

I've decided to go back to basics and start a PL/SP/PR collection.

I know early PL/SP collections are hard to distinguish but what year did SP start diverging from the PL in terms of radial lines starting to appear?!

1996 I believe is the first year , the coins look like specimen strikes. with the finish you mentioned.

In 1996 Specimen Sets introduced a parallel lined background.

1996 and 1997 are the only years in which PL sets and SP sets contained the same coins.

Ive already started collecting PL coins. I just came to the realization I have no idea whether these coins are SP/PL.

I opened random flips and just slotted them in because they looked pretty. Guess I have to restart this section. Sadly lol -_-

(I went back to old threads with debate about what is SP/PL and seems you can't really tell unless you're an expert or know if it came in the pliofilm or not)
